Sample Lessons

What I like most about the lesson plans is that they really relate to kids, so I've had really good buy-in from the students. The sequence and pacing of the lessons are super teacher-friendly as well.

Grades K–5

In the elementary grades, each teacher guide covers these key health topics: Emotional & Mental Health, Personal Health & Wellness, Violence & Injury Prevention, Nutrition & Physical Activity, Tobacco & Alcohol Prevention, and Sexual Health (Grades 4 & 5). Lessons and activities build sequentially to provide the reinforcement and continuity that will support children’s efforts to think, choose and act in healthy ways.

Middle School

Middle school students are attempting to establish themselves as individuals, and peers exert an important influence in that process. A careful emphasis on shaping peer norms that support healthy behaviors is a guiding principle of the middle school program.

High School

High school students are increasingly making independent decisions.They value social justice and actions that protect the health and safety of their community. Health advocacy is an important part of the high school program.
